It doesn’t matter if you are a cat person or a dog person – if you like pets, then you know how important they are in our lives. Not every cat is Garfield, scarfing down lasagna whenever possible. Not every dog is Lassie, able to rescue children who have fallen down a well. But every pet is special: purebreds, mutts and mixes, and everything in-between. Who can say no to a friendly smile?

The forthcoming anthology, PETS, is a collection of tales (tails?) about our furry friends. Service dogs. Rescues. Family companions. Childhood friends. Strays. Saviors. These are some of the roles pets play in our lives. PETS captures these stories for everyone to enjoy.
